Raced a Subaru STI!!

Ok today I was cruising and this STI came out of no where and just cruise next to me. So as soon as we got to the straight way with no cars we were cruising at 65mph (speed limit 65mph) I was in 4th gear doing 4,000 rpm if I remember good... anyway he punch it down and start taking the lead.. I reacted too late and when I punch it down he was like his rear bumper at my front fender, by the time my turbo really wake up and started to push he was like 1 car ahead or 3/4 car ahead... and that about it he couldn't pull me more.. So basically I just stay right there we both were doing (Speed not Rated) (I know is it stupid to go that fast) but I always wanted to know if I could take or keep up with a STI...

Well I think if I would it down shifted to 3rd and jump ahead of him, he couldn't pass me since we were both sort of even... well the best part comes I guess.. at the next light we stop side by side and he roll down the window and ask me "You have turbo right" so of course I answer yes and then he said" well I need to lose 900pounds on this car.. He said that because I guess the 2 people with him are heavy like hell or just the car is too heavy... I think he couldn't believe that he couldn't smoke me like probably he thought...

I'm happy with the result, for all I saw I think he had some exhaust work although it look factory and maybe some chip done... just by the way it sounded. Like in Fast & the Furious
"It doesn't matter if you win by a mile or an inch, a win is a win"

So I could say I got beat this time, I’ll be better prepared next time. At least he might not mess with me again...

Don't post speeds, especially when your that far over the limit...

Quoting fast and the furious isn't the way to get ahead...

I know,, but i still think if i would it down shifted to 3rd and jump before him.. it would been more exiting that he couldn't gain or pass me just because i jump before him and down shifted,, but it's ok is all part of the learning...I'm still pleased with the out come, can't complain i stay with an STI with just a plain Stock motor focus and Stock Clutch..

I'm definitibly changing the Clutch and Fly to CM Stg4 and Fidanza Flywheel.. then after that's done I might change the internals to Crowder Pistons, Eagle Rods and P&P Head and the goal is 300hp at the wheels....

basically, the forum has to cover its liability. if posting speeds were allowed, it makes it seem like this site condones those type of things, which leaves them open to a lawsuit from some dead kid's mom.

So keep the speeds off the posts, don't race on public streets, or if you do, pretend you were on a track when posting about it..

not to be a COMPLETE ASS, but I hate to "pretend" and fabricate stuff up with speeds and places....especially when people really want to know how close cars are to each other on the street....

and for all the people that try to sue a wesite...get a freakin life....

I'm done. [thumb]

High speeds on tracks are fine. High speeds on public roads are not.

It doesn't take Mark Twain to spin a good story without discussing speeds.

If you use thing like, 5600 rpm in 6th, judgeing mods and everything people can guestamate how fast you were going. We don't want to get the FF site in trouble .[thumb]

Well, its a sue-happy world... no matter what activity is taking place, some asshat is gonna try to be offended and sue.

What sucks is there is no punitive action for people who engage in frivolous lawsuits, the only person getting punished is the respondent whether the case is won OR lost
